Old Well

Reviewed by: spinali

Summary: NULL

Amidst slaty mountains, two villages war with each otherover a used-up well. Director Zhang Yimou underplays the role of the man who takes it upon himself to find water, and nearly loses his life in the process. The director of The Story of Xiu Ju uses his naturalistic style to good effect here.
